DWTS: Compare the sambas

Talk about sexy sambas? Three of the four teams were tied and Margaret Cho and her partner Louis van Amstel also failed in telling a clear story despite the storyline provided by the song itself.  Grey goofed on her samba and I didn’t particularly like the storyline.

Cho and van Amstel were eliminated.


  • Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough: 24
  • Brandy Norwood and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 24
  • Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke: 24
  • Margaret Cho and Louis van Amstel: 18

Week 8, Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas performed the samba for a score of 24 (8, 8, 8) to “Mas Que Nada” by Sergio Mendes.

Week 9, Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer performed a samba to “She’s Got Me Dancing” by Tommy Sparks for a score of 29 (10, 9, 10).
